Hall of Fame Honoured Member Wayne Goss was recently honoured at the 1st ever Vancouver Stealth Home Game.

The Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame was chartered in 1965.
Early in 1963, a group of lacrosse enthusiasts in New Westminster decided that, because of the Royal City’s historical background in the National Sport, New Westminster would be an appropriate location for the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame. With the blessing of the City Council, the interested parties applied to the Canadian Lacrosse Association for a charter.
